New Loves: Miessence Shimmer Creme & Liquid Foundation

Pin It!

Someone recently asked me about safe play make up for kids and I started looking around on the Internet for some safe brands.  Then it dawned on me that if you yourself are using safer make up, then it’s going to be safer for your daughters too.  I’ve been trying to really make an effort to make my make up bag as non-toxic and chemical free as possible and part of that meant finding new options for foundation and for lip colors.  I’ve been a big fan of mineral make up for a while but lately I’ve been wondering about those little particles getting in my lungs and felt I needed to find a liquid foundation that isn’t full of gunk.

Erin of Ely Organics was so gracious to send me some samples of the cosmetics offered by Miessence Organics.  It never occurred to me to check with Miessence for make up but lo, they do carry a nice line of cosmetics.  I checked out the Miessence Translucent Foundation and was really impressed. It goes on super smooth and does have a translucent look o it so you don’t look or feel overly made up or caked.  It blended in easily and is virtually odorless.  Ever notice how some foundations are a little, well stinky? Not so with Miessence Translucent Foundation.  It works perfectly by itself or with a powder (if that’s your preference).  If mineral foundations are your thing, they carry that too, along with concealers and bronzer.

I also had the chance to try out their Shimmer Creme.  This might be one of my newest favorite products Ive tried recently.  It’s essentially a lip gloss in pot rather than a tube since its more solid but onc eyou put your finger or lip brush in it you quickly realize it’s versatility. I chose a Shimmer Creme in Berry which is a warm berry tinted gloss that goes on sheer.  You can play with the concentration too… want to go light? You dab a small amount on your lips for a sheer tint of color with some sheen to it.  Need more of a night look? Add a larger amount and the color gets deeper with a glossier look.

What I also love is that it feels nice on your lips.  Not sticky or thick and has a very faint scent (vanilla?).  Either way, this made it as a permanent resident in my purse and will be making an appearance on my lips at a Holiday Party tomorrow night. What’s great is you can also use this as a blush… its sheer enough and light enough to give you an extra little glow.  It’s hard to believe a lip gloss that works this well has only 4 ingredients: certified organic simmondsia chinensis (jojoba) seed oil, certified organic unrefined cera alba (beeswax), mica, certified organic vanilla planifolia fruit extract. That’s it.

Miessence uses all natural ingredients, no chemicals and mostly organic ingredients too. I’m beginning a kind of love affair with Miessence products!

    Just wanted to let you guys know. I’ve been reading this blog and Lovely Safe Mama for a few weeks now, and wanted to show my extreme appreciation for everything you’re doing. I’ve gone through both blogs with a fine tooth comb lately, gathering as much information as I possibly can. I’ve learned about so many possibilities I NEVER would have found without you. Your suggestions will replace so many toxic products I would have otherwise been forced to purchase for lack of an alternative. Again, THANK YOU, THANK YOU, THANK YOU!
